Open your eyes
and look beyond
what is easy to see,
searching deep within
for what is always there
sometimes hidden
from even you
obscured by wants
with some
tempting as the apple
in the Garden of Eden
and sadly ignoring
the cost of free will
gone astray
that once again secured
you can go forth
in God's grace
with no pretense,
but as
you truly believe.
